 History

Located in the cradle of snow-capped mountains Auli, is a place too good to be put in words.The adventure destination of Auli lies towards the north of the state of Uttaranchal in Chamoli district and forms a part of the Garhwal mountain range. Auli is 16 km away from Joshimath at height of 2895m. The place is known for skiing more than anything else. Auli is the kind of place where pleasure and adventure, wild beauty and slopes of snow field, nature's beauty in its best form comes alive. The deodar and oak forests cover the slopes and reduce the velocity of the chilly winds to the minimum. The steep slopes of Auli seem to beckon all the adventure seekers. They offer a panoramic view of many a famous Himalayan peaks like Nanda Devi, Kamet, Mana Parvat and Dunagiri. Representing man's constant endeavour to triumph over nature, Auli proves to be an ideal locale for the daring. For several hundred years, the nomadic Bhotiyas walked the sheep trails of Auli, locally called Thatauli. In the winter, the terrain transforms itself into perfect skiing slopes.
